The Christmas Decoration

The first cut, rather crappy, video of the Christmas decoration I built this year, taken live at the judging. I'll post a better version next week after the kids' open day on Wednesday, along with some of the competition.

Sadly I didn't win this year, due to an undiscovered bias on the part of the judge for model trains. In response, of course, I'm organising a "People's Choice" competition at the open day. After all, you don't invest five days of your life into something like this and LOSE.

Very nice, Wysi. But... you didn't WIN?! With your mania for decorating?! Inconceivable. *loves Wysi plenty of alcohol to drown his sorrows*

Thanks neo. The experience WAS crushing.

I consumed all the alcohol between the in-laws Christmas party and my older sister's 25th wedding anniversary party on Sunday.

Remarkably, I have no further Christmas parties until actually on Christmas day. Not counting ad hoc opportunities that may present themselves this week of course....

No more parties?! Wys, take it easy; you can throw your system into shock if you just stop partying cold turkey. You can sidestep this problem easily enough; just keep a small jar of confetti by your desk and periodically throw a small handful up into the air while shouting, "whee!"

Oh, and also, drink heavily every night. That'll keep you in shape for the round of New Years parties.

Wheeee!

I pity the cleaners. There's going to be a LOT of confetti around my desk by the end of the week.

Oh dear, I'm so far behind in checking your blog out, wys.

I suggest you make your Santa and/or snowperson explode at the end. Nothing says Christmas like exploding icons.
